Tabarz

The Tabarz iron, found in 1854, has been classified as group IIICD by R. Bartoschewitz (Bart) and B. Spettel (MPI): bulk metal composi­tion, Ni = 6.33 wt%, Cu = 136 ppm, Ga = 106 ppm, Ir = 1.25 ppm, Au = 1.39 ppm. Based on compositional data, it is possible that Tabarz is paired with the Morasko and Seeläsgen IIICD irons.
